12 of 12: December

Chad Darnell hosts 12 of 12 - I look forward to it every month. Check out the photos others from across the globe took on this day by linking to Chads site HERE.

1. 12: 16 am
I got home from work (UFC) and Shel was in the kitchen waiting for me making salad. YUM! It was after midnight and "officially" the 12th so I started to snap pictures. Here is the oven clock just before we head upstairs..

 2. 7:00 am
CJ is in bed with us watching t.v.
It's our weekend morning ritual.

 3. 2:00pm
It is the foster care family Christmas party today. The party is held at the bowling alley, the boys are fascinated by the video games.

 4. 3:00pm
What is there to do that is more fun than running alongside the bowling lanes?

5. 4:30pm
Present time! max is helping C.J. open his present.

The safest place to drive a school bus is under the pool table and away from all the feet!

7. 5:30pm
Left over drinks. Who decided it was a good idea for little kids to drink pop at a Christmas party? I know it is Christmas, but these kids have to come home with us after - and pop before bed does not an easy bedtime make.
8. 6:30pm
Parties over. Shoes are off.

9. 6:30pm
Well someone has to clean off the vehicle so we can see where we are going!
It's snowing pretty hard which is par for the course for the foster party. I think it would not be typical for there to be good weather on this day...

10. 8pm
The birdfeeder is getting buried.

 11. 9:00pm
This is the best this flowerbed border looks all year!

 12. Bedtime.
The day ends the same way it starts. On mom's bed.

a chritsmas party in a bowling alley?! what a delightful alley. i haven't been often in one of those, but i always had a great time. but i agree: soda pop? sugar rush!!! not good. as for the snow, well, it's the same here... unfortunately!!
oh well, springtime in 6 to 18 months!!!

happy holidays, one and all!!

Hopefully, the organizers of the party had lots of little fosters to take home with them....and got a taste of the hyperactity the soda caused. :-) Glad you had a nice party for the children. Stay warm, and Merry Christmas.

Nice boys :-). The pics with the snow... it seems like Germany. We have had sooo much snow the last days ! We wish you and your family: Merry Christmas and happy New Year from Germany :-).

Bowling!! I haven't been there since centuries! Well ok... let's say decades.
It seems you all had a wonderful day (despite the Pop!)

Merry Christmas!

What a fun day! It makes me think I should plan a bowling outing with my niece during the holidays.

Thanks for sharing!

Snow pics always look so fantastic, it's snowing here too today :)

Have a great Christmas, see you next year!

Bowling before Christmas sounds lovely - though maybe not the sugar rush bit afterwards!

Sorry my comment is late - I wanted to wait until my own 12 was up, before I visited everyone else's.
